Shared Opportunities for Schools and Communities. Robert Lee Sutherland Seminar (8th, Austin, TX, September 25-26, 1992).
Holtzman, Wayne H., Ed.
The purpose of the conference reported in this document was to share recent information about the nature and effectiveness of school-linked services; policy options for implementing neighborhood projects involving elementary and middle schools and their surrounding communities in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio; and future prospects for parent-teacher participation in education reform. Attention was focused on how traditional education could be integrated with a wide array of health and human services, both treatment and prevention, for which the school can serve as the locus of delivery. Addresses included: "A Fresh Look at Restructuring Schools," by Lionel R. Meno, the Texas Commissioner of Education; "Partnerships for Participation and Progress," by Wilhelmina Delco of the Texas House of Representatives, and closing comments by Dr. Cora Marrett, professor of Sociology and African-American studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The discussions from four workshops representing a given period of life and schooling--prenatal/preschool, elementary, middle, and high school--in which each workshop identified needs and made recommendations for service delivery, are summarized. Major themes addressed in the workshops included parent involvement and education, coordination of and collaboration among services school-based services, public awareness, and cultural sensitivity. A list of workshop participants is included. (LMI)
